My inspired card:
I have to say that inspiration challenges are diffinately my favourite challenges to do and Makeesha had such a great one this week that I needed to find a little time to make a card for it. I have been doing so much stamping and project making for swaps and design team commitments that it was nice to finally stamp for me!
The picture to me really spoke a more masculine feel even though I tend to struggle with masculine cards I thought this was the perfect oppotunity to try my hand at a more manly design. I didn't have much time to do any fabulous technique so I just kept it clean and simple. The card base is Basic Gray and I used the Classic Stars Jumbo wheel for a quick and easy background. I then used So Saffron Designer Series Paper layered on top of Basic Black and Textured Bermuda Bay card stock. The thin strip along the bottom of the card is the same patterned DSP but on the reverse side. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black on Whisper White and used So Saffron stars to give it a little more pop. Again using the Textured Bermuda Bay I backed the words on to it and also added a little strip of Basic Black. It was then mounted on the card with dimensionals. And last but not least those fabulous Corduroy Brads. So glad that I still can use embelishments on a manly card, those cord buttons and brads rock on any project!
That's it Clean. Simple. Quick. Hope you enjoy your day I'm off to work on more swaps (or should I say start them LOL!)
